Abby has been part of the Dance Gallery community for many years and is excited to start her teaching career. Abby has been trained in ballet, jazz, modern, contemporary, and other styles at Dance Gallery.
Abby continued to pursue her passion for dance at Providence College in Rhode Island. As a recent graduate, she received a B.A. in Elementary and Special Education along with a dance minor. She has taken classes in children’s dance, dance composition, and many more.
Throughout her four years at PC she was a part of the Providence College Dance Company, where she had the opportunity to work with choreographers from Rhode Island and the Boston area. The Dance Company offered members opportunities to choreograph in the spring for the student showcase, where Abby created many of her own pieces.
While attending Providence College, Abby taught creative movement and jazz to children from the Providence neighborhood. Abby enjoyed dancing with the children each week and seeing their excitement to learn new techniques. This position helped to inspire Abby to continue a career in teaching dance.
